The Art of Jaw Reattachment

"You haven't a clue to what I'm talking about"
Perhaps that's not the best way to start off a piece.
Still I thought I'd warn you 'fore you opened your mouth,
this dire message of mine will be cryptic at best.
With rhythm and flow may you set your mind at ease,
for these words desire eager ears to stand the test.
Please allow me to pick your jaw up off the ground.
You've been gibb'ring nonsense ever since you read me.
Blind adoration in huge heaps like compost mounds,
clinging to all that my busy fingers writeth,
wasted on the teller instead of the story.
And thus the final words of a famous poet,
"You haven't a clue to what I'm talking about,
but allow me to pick your jaw up off the ground"

    I'm actually not sure what that saying means. But I don't take your comments lightly either. This was just something fun to try... to see where my mind would take me.

    Ha ha. Well I honestly don't know where I came up with this one. I was thinking of how some people seem to ADORE some authors... yet at the same time they seem to have no idea what it is they just read. It's kinda funny really...

    Any physical reaction, after reading a poem, is a good thing in my book. And your work was worth praising, my friend!
